Looking for root to install pi-hole

I downloaded the software to see what it would be like before buying a diy case for a pi 4. I’m running into problems installing pi-hole since it wants root and not sudo. if I can’t get root then I guess I’ll have to buy a 2 pi 4 asap so my diet-pi build can be kept running to provide the pi-hole and plex server.

Did you try starting in Terminal with
“sudo su” —> Enter
“cd /root”

I think you misunder stand. the software needs to run as root user and it checks on installl if it’s running as root user

has anyone managed to get pi-hole installed and running on the pi-top os?

The command sudo su - Will log you in as root.

pi@pi-top:~ $ id
uid=1000(pi) gid=1000(pi) groups=1000(pi),4(adm),20(dialout),24(cdrom),27(sudo),29(audio),44(video),46(plugdev),60(games),100(users),105(input),109(netdev),997(gpio),998(i2c),999(spi)
pi@pi-top:~ $ sudo su -
root@pi-top:~# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)

Raspberry PI’s are popular choices for Pi-Hole so it should work fine. I am running it on a ARMv7 cpu running Debian Buster just not a pi-top
